Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has challenged Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp to win the Premier League title after his summer spending spree, reports The Mirror.
Klopp has spent £175 million this summer, including £66 million on Brazil goalkeeper Alisson and £44 million on Fabinho. The Reds also bought Xherdan Shaqiri and Naby Keita from Stoke City and RB Leipzig respectively.
Liverpool’s last silverware was the League Cup back in 2012 and Mourinho, whose Manchester United side take on Klopp’s team in Saturday’s International Champions Cup, said they have to start winning big trophies on the back of so much investment.
“I think if you have the money, if you invest well, it’s better than to have it in the bank, because the interest rates are very low,” said Mourinho.
“The problem is you have to invest well and, honestly, I think they did very well, because every player they bought are quality players and I’m happy for them.
“I’m also happy to smile and to see that, you know, you can change your opinion and change as a person – it’s funny. But that’s okay.
“But maybe this season, finally you demand that they win. You, I think, have to be fair and now you have to demand and say the team with investments you are making last season, that you made in January, that you make now, that will probably be the record of the Premier League this season, a team that was a finalist in the Champions League, you have to say you are a big candidate and you have to win.”
